Perfect with a cup of coffee....

The week-end is finally here!  I hope  you are enjoying a good Saturday, wherever you are and whatever you are doing.

This recipe would be perfect with a cup of coffee.  It comes from Betty Crocker's Old-Fashioned Cookbook from 1990, and is one more delicious way for us to enjoy those blueberries.:-)


2 cups all-purpose flour
3/4 cup sugar
2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
3/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup shortening
3/4 cup milk
1 egg
2 cups fresh or frozen (thawed and drained) blueberries
Crumb Topping (below)
Glaze (also below)

 - Heat oven to 375 degrees F.  Grease square pan, 9 x 9 x 2 inches, or round pan, 9 x 1 1/2 inches.  Blend flour, sugar baking powder, salt, shortening, milk, and egg; beat 30 seconds.  Carefully stir in blueberries.  Spread batter in pan; sprinkle with Crumb Topping.  Bake 45-50 minutes or until wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean.  Drizzle with Glaze.  Serve warm.  9 servings

Out of the oven, waiting for the Glaze.  


1/2 cup sugar
1/3 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 cup butter, softened

Mix all ingredients until crumbly.


1/2 cup powdered sugar
1/4 teaspoon vanilla
1 1/2 to 2 teaspoons hot water

Mix all ingredients until drizzling consistency.

Ready to serve.  Would you care to join me?

The Blueberry Buckle is served on a cake plate designed by Susan Branch for Lenox.   The plate and cup and saucer are Strawberry Fair by Johnson Brothers.  There will be more about them in another post.  The stainless flatware is Chateau by Gorham.

There are ways we are able to find refreshing spots on a hot summer day.  That will be part of the next post.

Thank you so much for reading.  I really appreciate your comments.


  1. This recipe sounds so good! The finished product looks delicious and very nicely presented.

  2. This sounds delicious. I am having an iced coffee and this would be perfect with it. Love all things blueberry. Wishes for a sweet weekend.

  3. Oh-I love blueberry buckle and have not had any in years.

    Those are my favorite dishes in the world. I lost a set in a move and am just sick about it. I tried to replace them but you can't find them anymore- Oh- I can't wait to see your post on them. xo Diana

  4. this is my fav recipe! I have that cookbook!!!
    It looks delicous.

  5. Oh yum, that looks so wonderful. I dug out my Susan Branch summer cookbook today. I thought about you the whole time I was looking at it. :)

  6. Looks yummy, and I'm sure it won't last long at your house! The Husband works up a good appetite, and those wonderful "snacks" he enjoys do not add the pounds that most of us have to worry about. Thanks for sharing another great recipe, and I'll look forward to hearing about the dishes, too.

  7. Mmmmm, sounds good, Nellie. I can almost smell it baking. Thanks for your visit and comment today! Susan

  8. Nellie, You are a very good cook. All the baking you do has looked very tasty. Smiles, Susie

  9. Oh boy does that look good. I'd like a scoop of vanilla ice cream to go along with it!
    The dishes are really pretty.

  10. I'm getting a can of whipped cream ready for this yummy recipe.

  11. We have 30 blueberry bushes so I'm always looking for great recipes that include blueberries and this one looks yummy!


  12. I am also enjoying the abundance of blueberries this time of the year! Your buckle looks delicious, as well as your muffins in the prior post--I also posted a bluebberry yogurt cake last week. The yogurt made it so nice and moist, almost like pound cake.

  13. great recipe! looks yummy! i want to come for coffee! enjoy your day!
